Money Monday - An Easy, Fun Way to Make Some Extra Cash!
A friend of mine introduced me to an up-and-coming site called ChaCha. You may have heard of them. They are a texting service that answers any question you may have. The company has been around for a few years, but it made it's debut at the Sundance Festival in January and has really picked up speed since then!
So how does the making money part work? Well, here's the deal...
You can sign up to be a ChaCha guide (someone who answers the questions asked) and you get paid per question (10-20 cents). Sounds easy, right? Well, it IS easy! And fun! I can't believe how much I've learned already!
There is a somewhat lengthy "interview" process (about 2 hours total over a few days), but from all I can tell they don't really turn anyone down unless they are a complete dud. I mean, you can take the test as many times as you want until you succeed. Sounds like a no-fail plan to me!
If you want to give this a try, PLEASE put down my email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) on the sign-up page under your referral. I will earn 10% of everything you make! Well, I mean....you will make the regular amount but I'll make an additional 10%. And everyone you refer will earn you an additional 10%! Good deal, right? I know!
My friend who referred me said that she does this for 1-2 hours each evening. Last month, she made $500! I am excited to see how quickly my earnings add up!
Now, I don't want to sound like some gimmick TV show here. There is work involved. You must have a working knowledge of internet search engines. You must answer each question in less than 10 minutes. But if it's time you're going to spend at the computer anyway, why not give it a try?
